The term ‘AC’ is one we’ve heard quite a lot from Jordan Brand over the last few years. AC signifies ‘Auto Clave’, which is the style of the midsole seen here – a smooth, flat base that instantly transforms a sporty shoe into a lifestyle option. Next up on Jordan Brand’s ‘AC’ transformation is the Air Jordan III; the first thing to notice is the obvious lower cut of the shoe, which forced a slight redesign particularly on the heel (an interesting full-elephant) as well as on the base of the lace placket. Six colorways are viewable below, so take a look and let us know what you think of this ‘AC’ idea, because more Air Jordan Retro ‘AC’ models may be on the way.
Why would you try to release some trash like this? No one wants a "casual" version of their 3's....They want 3's. It didn't work with the XII's, why ruin another classic Jordan like this?
I understand how the auto clave midsole gives a shoe more of a lifestyle look, but I hate seeing IIIs like this. JB is killing my grails (lol).
